Chairman of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Football Association (FA) Mohammed Mukhtar, has reiterated his commitment to developing football at the grassroots in the nation’s capital.
FCT FA boss said that, the FA had already embarked on some programmes aimed at developing football at the grassroots level.
“We are on course and we have embarked on a number of football development programmes as promised when we were inaugurated.
“We have just concluded the FCT U-15 Inter-Council Football Tournament.
“I announced at the closing ceremony that I will award 15 coaches drawn from the area councils scholarship and they will proceed on the course in October.
“We also recently organised a coaching clinic and health and wellness training for coaches in the FCT.
“We have a similar programme penciled down for referees, which we will carry out soon, and we also intend to recruit more referees as part of our grassroots development plan,” he said.
The former vice chairman of the FCT FA, who in June emerged chairman having defeated the then incumbent Musa Talle, had promised grassroots football development as his cardinal objective.
